    Pros

    Lots of options career wise.

    Cons

    Management can be close-minded & stuck in ways, especially when they haven't sat in the seat of whom they're managing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people. Don't just promote those who play the game well. They're phoney & dishonest & will chase the good people away.

    Pros

    Smaller Latin American Division of Tech Data Corp., based in Miami. Great for experience and exposure to export and Latin America. Great benefits and incentives. Industry name recognition might be one of the best assets anyone can take away from working here.

    Cons

    Very limited growth opportunities, due mainly to size of the division itself. It is very hard to move up in position or rank. Highly political. Compensation not always commensurate to workload, especially for marketing positions.

    Advice to Management

    Must re-consider career growth paths, and/or offer better compensation and benefits packages.

  6. Highly energetic, great place to work

    Pros

    Great co-workers all trying to do the right thing. Benefits are fair though they are going downhill slowly. Lots of youth and decent diversity.

    Cons

    Try as you might it's never good enough. Unless you are part of the "in crowd" you'll never get ahead. Cronyism and elitism is everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more, talk less. Don't discount ideas just because they're not yours.
